BOYCOTT IN CHINA.
Written for The Advertiser, by Rev.
S. C. Todd, American Missioncry
Something new has happened in old
China. None would have thought hei
hetrogeneous, discordant, unpatriotic
people could have moved as one man.
Japan could do so, but China-never!
And yet the seemingly impossible has
happened, and the nations of the world
have been brought aface another power
to be reckoned with in the future.
China galling under indignities heaped
upon her gentry and sons of wealth by
American immigration officials has
arisen and said to the Republic of the
West: ' 'Respect us or keep your goods.''
Newspapers at first passed it lightly
with a smile, but as the months have
passed a mighty tremor has been felt
up and down the Empire. In the most
systematic ways a thorough campaign
has been conducted against things
"American," and the "American Boy
cott" is now a well established phrase
in the language of the people.
It is said the movement was launched
in Shanghai, but active propogandists
have carried it from Manchuria to
Siam, and instilled it into the Chinese
far and wide. Canton, Macao and Hong
Kong, with their contiguous territories,
have for months been centers of the
excitement. A Canton committee with
boyc -tt headquarters has touched the
Celestials in all parts of the earth.
Chinese residing in America, Australia,
the Phillipinc Islands, Japan and the
Malay Straights have sent contribu
tions by the thousands.
In Canton and other large centers,
store rooms have been fitted up with
samples of American wares, so that the
peoplo might be educated and made
able to distinguish American. Daily
newspapers have been especially
launched to forward the movement.
Pictures of American attrocities on the
Chinese have been scattered far and
wide, inflaming the people. Bad wo
men have herald information concern
ing it by their songs on the streets at
nights. The stage has loaned its help
and actors have woven iL into the play.
Troupes have been employed to go into
the interior and make the movement
the prominent part of their perform
ance. In Canton a special caste has
been gotten up and characters have
personified leading grievances, speak
ing in the common language of the
people that all may understand.
There has also been the funny side.
Here is a barber who refuses to shave
Americans; a beggar throws away a
coat that has just been given to him as
an accursed thing, because some one
says it is American. At the Hong Kong
Navy Yards a man is put to work re
pairing a diving suit, and when the
tube of cement is handed to him he
passes it back saying: "No can, b'long
Amlican." A Canton contractor quits
a piece of work entailing a loss of sev
eral thousand dollars to himself be
cause he finds the contract is financed
by American money, and his co-pa
triots promptly make good his loss.
"Flower Boats," which are the houses
of ill-fame in Canton throw all their
"Florida Water" into the River, which
others might do to the improvement of
the ordor from that dirty and busy
During September the Chinese an
nually worship the moon, a special
night set apart for this. At this fes
tival large quantities of cakes, known
as "Noon Cakes," are used. These
are manufactured months ahead and
many shipped to other lands to the
Chinese residing there. This year these
shipments were returned, because
American flour was used in their manu
facture, while the devotees here U3ed
Bubstitues, all to the loss of the Moon
Had Solomon lived in China ho might
have said, as truly as he did of books,
"of the making of idols there is no
end." A wealthy Shanghai merchant
became so wrought up over the indigni
ties heaped upon his countrymen that
ho was driven to suicide. This con
stituted him a hero, and being de
ceased he came within the circle of
diety, and now his worship has been
established in Macao, Canton, Wu
chow and other places. Thus the
American Boycott is responsible for
another idol, which will be handed
down to future generations, as well as
worshipped by the present.
What have these highly wrought
feelings accomplished? ask the Ameri
can dealer. Recently the manager of
a leading firm, who have branches in a
number of interior and coast cities,
said to mo: "Business is practically
nothing." Before the movement began
their trade had reached a highly pro
fitable condition. Similar testimonials
could bo given by many. American
trade had reached a splendid growth,
but now it is threatened with such a
back-set that years will be required to
win it back, German and British firms
meanwhile reaping the benefits.
But the most serious feature is the
grave risk that attaches to the for
eigner's life. It is an easy step from
foreign goods to inflicting bodily harm
on foreign persons. The American
Consul in Canton realizing the danger,
has called all the missionaries who are
laboring in the interior to come into
treaty ports. We feel perfectly safe
here in Macao, as this city is governed
by the Portuguese, while Hong Kong
being a British Colony, there is equal
safety there. But in the interior in
many places things arc far from a
peaceful state. If the American Sen
ate does not remove all barriers in the
immigration regulations which have hith
erto been so objectionable to the bet
ter class of Chinese, which have put
them on a par with the coolie class,
there will he serious trouble ahead. It
i-i time for God's people to pray earn
estly to Him who guides the affairs of
individuals and nations alike, who can
bring order out of this chaon, to muko
this lead to an even wider door for the
gospel of Mercy and Peace.

Thoro Is scarcely auy error so popu

Invariably attributes uuhoundod ludo
leuco to tho monastic ordert) ui' former
days. To thorn we owe tho prescrva
tlou of literature, both in the pains they
took to porpetuato history by their La?
bora in transcribing and by their dili
gence la the education of youth.
In the large monasteries a chamber
was always net apart for writing, al
lowing spaco In the saino apartment
for other quiet employments also. The
transcribers were superintended by thu
abbot, prior, BUbprlor and precentor of
the convent aud were distinguished by
the namo of "nntiqunrli." These in
dustrious persons wore continually oc
cupied In making now copies of old
manuscript hooks for the use of other
monasteries, and by this means many
wero educated and our most valuablo
historical records were preserved.
Tho Anglo-Saxon monks were most
celcbratod as writers and wero tho
originators of tho small roman lottor
used In modern times. Tho greatest
delicacy and nicety were deemed es
sential in the transcribing of books.
Whether for tho purpose of general In
struction or for the use of the convents.
CarolesB and Illegible writing Is
therefore but seldom to be mot with
among the remains of monastic indus
try, and when erasures were inado
they appear to have been done with
the utmost care and skill. For this
purpose the monks used pumlco stone,
and they wero also provided with a
punctorlum, or awl, to make tho dots
and with metal pens for writing until
after the seventh ceutury, when quills
were brought Into use, they being far
better than the metal pens then In use.
The Inks wero composed of lamp
black soot mixed with water and gum
for uno upon tho vellum, paper not be
ing Introduced until tbo tenth century;
hence tho beautiful distinctness, as
well as durability, of very auclent
manuscript books. So Important was
i the art of writing lu those days that
! It Is conceded as many as 100 different
, stylos were In vogue among tho learn
With so many Impediments to tho
multiplication of books as were nt
: tendant upon their slow production In
; this manner, It is not. a matter of sur
prise Hint the monks enjoyed almost a
i monopoly of this kind of labor, as In
truth they were the only body of men
; who could properly conduct It. Tho
; expense of preparing hooks was pro
j vorblally groat, and large estates wero
! frequently sot apart for the purpose of
; purchasing them. In addition to the
I cost.of transcribing, the materials of
! which boohs were composed were
1 nuurees of groat expense. The leaves
? In mnny Instances were composed of
purple vellum for tho purpose of show
i lug off to more advantage letters of
gold and silver. Tho binding was often
very gorgeous, although of rude con
, structlon. The prevailing covering for
hooks was a rough white 8heop.skIn
pasted on a wooden board, with Im
monse bosses of brass, but the ex
i terJor of thoso Intended for church
service was inlaid with gold relics or
! sliver embossed on ivory plates. Somo
! books had leaden covers and pome had
i wooden leaves, but even as early as
: this bindings In velvet with silver
clasps and studs were made as pres
ents for exalted personages.
Illuminating manuscripts was also
another occupation of the monks of the
middle ages, although not confined to
them, for the greatest painters of the
day disdained not to contribute tothes i
cumbrous and sometimes confused dec
orations. Tho art of correct drawing
and a knowledge of perspective cannot,
however, bo ascribed to the generality
of tho fantastic pictures by which illu
minated books uro adorned. Coloring
and Kliding appear to have boon tho
chief paints to which the attention of
tho Illuminations was directed. Tho
neutral tint was first laid on somewhat
In the xnmo mode as In the present day,
some portions being left untouched In
order to be afterward Imbedded In gold
and silver. The pictures represented
different subjects, according to the na
ture of tho book which they wero In
tended to embellish. Tho tltlo on tho
pages was formed of capital letters of
gold and aauro mixed. Illuminated pic
ture.1; are of a dazzling brightness, tbo
whlto predominating, which, not bolug
an oil color, reflects tho rays of light
; and does not absorb diem. Ho much
1 custom had tho monks In their labors
of transcribing and Illuminating that
they were sometimes obliged to intro
duce hired limners, although contrary
to tho monastic rule In,general, but
such aids wero seldom resorted to, tho
tnonks being usually the oniy laborers.
The invention of printing diminished
tho Importance and annihilated the
profits of writing, and in IdOO that of
engraving superseded the art of Illu
minating.- New York Herald.
